CLF Releases “Gifts” Ad Campaign Against Pete Gallego

WASHINGTON – The Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC) today released the ad “Gifts” in Texas’ 23rd congressional district race, delivering a closing salvo on Pete Gallego’s liberal record for President Obama at the expense of Texans.

In Texas, Pete Gallego campaigns as a moderate, but in Washington, he’s a liberal loyalist for Obama. Despite higher costs for Texans, Pete Gallego voted for Obamacare, just like President Obama wanted. And when President Obama didn’t like a balanced budget, Pete Gallego voted against it, too.

The ad will run on San Antonio broadcast and cable as part of CLF’s $1.1 Million in independent expenditures in the TX-23 race. “Gifts” will also feature a 15-second version for online advertising. CLF’s sister organization, American Action Network, has already spent $500,000 in the race.

“From Obamacare to big-government spending, Pete Gallego delivers the goods for President Obama,” said Emily Davis, spokeswoman for Congressional Leadership Fund. “Now Texans know that a vote for Pete Gallego is a vote for President Obama.”
